**REVIEW TOUR** The Summer Proposal by Vi Keeland




Title: The Summer Proposal
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 10, 2022


BLURB

The first time I met Max Yearwood was on a blind date.
Max was insanely gorgeous, funny, and our chemistry was off the charts. He also had the biggest dimples I’d ever laid eyes on.
Exactly what I needed after my breakup.
Or so I thought…
Until my real date arrived.
Turned out, Max wasn’t who I was there to meet. He only pretended to be until my real date showed up.
To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.
Before he left, he slipped me a ticket to a hockey game a few blocks away, in case things didn’t work out on my actual date.
I tossed the ticket into my purse and went about trying to enjoy the man I was supposed to meet.
But my real blind date and I had no connection.
So on my way home, I decided to take a chance and stop by the game.
When I arrived, the seat next to me was empty.
Disappointed again, I decided to leave at the end of the period.
Just before the buzzer, one of the teams scored, and the entire arena went crazy.
A player’s face flashed up on the Jumbotron. He was wearing a helmet, but I froze when he smiled.
You guessed it: Dimples.
Apparently, my fake blind date hadn’t invited me to watch hockey with him, he’d invited me to watch him play.
And so began my adventure with Max Yearwood.
He was everything I needed at the time—fun, sexy, up for anything, and only around for a few months since he’d signed with a new team three-thousand miles away.
Max proposed we spend the summer helping me forget my ex. It sounded like a good plan. Things couldn’t get too serious when we had an expiration date. Right?
Though, you know what they say about the best-laid plans.

5 Stars

Wow! What another great stand alone from Vi Keeland.  And what a great way to start the New Year off!
This is Georgia and Max's story.
It all started with a little lie while on a blind date.
I loved how their story played out.
I will admit, I was worried a few times while reading this.
I thought Gabriel was a huge jerk!
I could have killed Max for making me scared.
This read will have you in your feelings, that's for sure. 
I absolutely loved it!

**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** Legend by Marie James

 Release Date: January 6


I wouldn’t call it love at first sight, but my body definitely reacted when I saw her.
Getting Faith Robbins under me became my obsession.
I knew I wanted fast and done.
It’s how I always did things.
Looking for anything more with a woman was never in the cards.
I wasn’t like the other guys in the Cerberus MC. I didn’t want more.
It was physical, sating a desire.
Then someone began to seek revenge, and my other instincts kicked in.
Spending time with her was about protecting her, keeping her safe.
Now if only I could remind my heart what the plan was.

4 Stars

This is the 19th book in the Cerberus MC series.  They are standalones, but the previous book did set this one up.  This book also set up the next two in the series. 
This is Ethan "Legend" Packwood and Faith Robbins story.
Legend first met Faith in Apollo's book.  She is Apollo's lawyer.  But she wants nothing to do with Legend.  But that all changes after a trip to Jake's and something bad happens.
There is a lot of second guessing about their feelings in this book.  
Faith has someone out to ruin her life, and take her life. 
I will admist that my guess on who the "bad guy" was, was wrong.
That last chapter had me tearing up for Harley.

Meet Marie James


Let's see...where to begin...

I'm inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we're doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master's degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there's usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I'm not writing; I'm reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I'm reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it's gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.

This is the ninth book in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series.  They are standalones.

This is Rosie and Dylan's story.

If you like older men and a close to insta love, but not quite insta, you need to read this.

This is a good read.

Rosie is a tough chick.

Dylan learns a lot about himself.

I did feel like ending was a little rushed though.

Genre: Paranormal Romantic Suspense

When her deceptive plan against the Royal Pack fails, royal arctic wolf, Kara Channon, finds herself stripped of her strength and left with nothing but the weak human shell of a body. Knowing it’s too dangerous for her to stay in Wyoming, Chase Maheegan volunteers to be her jailor and take her to California to be with him.

For years, they were rivals.
Now, he’s her only hope.

Chase always enjoyed making the uptight royal squirm, but Kara refused to give in to her attraction for him... until now. Desperate for her power to be restored, Kara spends a passionate night in his arms only to sneak away in the morning and thrust herself into a world of danger.

Time is running out as darkness circles the beautiful wolf. Can Chase get to her in time to save her from herself? Or will the lure of an unmated royal mark her as a target for those who would kill to claim her?

Tonya's Review
4 Stars

This is the seventh book in the Royal Shifters series.  It *could* be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend reading in order.  The previous book sets this one up.  It goes into depth with all the things Kara did to end up with her powers gone, along with her wolf, and that shiny new bracelet.  
I've always liked Chase, since the first time I've read about him.
I hated Kara, but after getting to know her in this book, I like her now.  She changed so much in this book.  Well, I don't know if it was change, as much as she just dropped her walls and let her true self show.

EXCERPT

I left one hell for another. The sleeping spell has worn off, and now I’m back.
I can’t see a fucking thing, and when I take a step, my legs give out beneath me. My knee scrapes against the concrete, and the sting shoots up my leg. “Son of a bitch,” I growl, carefully touching my knee. My teeth chatter and my body shakes with not only being cold but from fury. I’ve never been weak like this before. I’m also starving. My stomach feels as if it’s burning and twisting into tight knots.
The weight of the bracelet is heavy on my wrist, and I grip it as hard as I can, pulling until my muscles begin to shake. “Dammit,” I shout, knocking myself off balance. I reach out into the darkness, grabbing onto the first thing I can to stop my fall. Bottles clank together as I grip the shelf and take a deep breath. Slowly, I reach out to touch the bottles, wishing like hell I could use my wolf sight to see. I remember Chase saying that’s where he was going to keep me … in his wine cellar. Bastard.
“Chase!” I shout as loud as I can. Fumbling through the dark, I feel around the walls until I find the staircase. I’m not staying in the goddamned cellar any longer. I start up the stairs, and there’s a sliver of light at the bottom crack of the door.
“Chase!” I shout, balling my fist tight and banging on the wood. Pain shoots up my arm, and I curse under my breath. If I had my strength, I’d break down the damn door. “So help me,” I scream, beating the door even harder, “if you don’t open up this fucking door, I’m going to destroy every single bottle of wine you have down here.” A few seconds pass, and nothing. “Chase!” Huffing, I grip onto the handrail and start down into the dark. “All right, here I go, asshole!” The door swings open, filling the staircase with the brightest light I’ve ever seen. “What the hell?” I hiss, turning my face away. I blink a few times until my eyes adjust. When I look up at the top of the stairs, Chase is there with an enormous, shit-eating grin on his face. “You’re not going to be smiling like that for long.”
Chase rears his head back and laughs. “Oh yeah? And how are you going to stop me?”
Growling, I storm up the stairs and lift my hand to smack him, but when I try to connect, it’s as if I moved in slow motion.
Chase snatches my wrist and grins, his blue eyes piercing right through me. “I’m going to love having you around.”

**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** My Unexpected Surprise by Piper Rayne

Release Date: December 14

I never thought of myself as dad material.
Until my one-night stand showed up in my small Alaskan town five months pregnant.

But I don’t shy away from responsibility. First, because I’m a Greene and not to boast but we’re kind of a big deal in Sunrise Bay. Second, I’m the Sheriff.

I couldn’t have predicted how protective I’d become for the safety of her and my unborn baby to the point of asking her to move in with me and be my roommate.

Just when I think I have the situation under control, another surprise knocks me over, but it only spurs me to double down.

I’ll be the first to admit, I didn’t think it through. Somewhere between the dinners, the TV show binging, the doctor appointments, and me walking in on her naked, lines blurred.

In what feels like warp speed, my bachelor for life status is in jeopardy and I’m fighting for the most important thing of all—my family.

Tonya's Review
5 Stars

This is the fifth book in the Greene Family series.  These are stand alones, but I think they're more enjoyable if you read them in order.  Plus the previous book always sets up the next and you get little easter eggs about the remaining family members.
This is Fisher and Allie's story.  And of course Dori and Ethel meddle some, and they will have you laughing.
This story starts five months after a one-night stand.  Fisher gets a couple big surprises.
Fisher comes to terms about why he is like he is.  It's not an easy road.  But things do change for him.
Allie wants the whole fairy tale, from start to finish.  She doesn't want anything else.  But do those ever truly happen?  She has to learn you can get the same ending without the fairy tale story in the middle.  
This is a cute read that will have you laughing.  But, you will also be worried a few times as well.
I love these two together.
What is up with Xavier though?!
And what happened between him and Clara?
Posey's up next!

**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** My Summer In Seoul by Rachel Van Dyken

My Summer In Seoul by Rachel Van Dyken is now live!

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes a standalone new adult romance set in the competitive world of K-pop.

It's not all K-dramas and happily ever afters.

Intern with Korea's number one record label? Yes, please.
Find out there's a huge scandal I need to help "manage"... not so much.
Add in the fact that I don't recognize the "superstars" of the label and think they're interns...
And my dream job quickly becomes more of a nightmare.

But I'm in Seoul, the one place that is beginning to feel more and more like home...
Except it isn't home, and the drama surrounding the biggest K-pop group in the world, SWT, is consuming my every moment.
Spoiler alert. They hate me.
Everything I do is wrong: wrong clothes, wrong honorifics, wrong manners.
Till the leader of SWT takes pity on me.
But pity is dangerous when it comes from someone as beautiful as him.

Every SWT member is gorgeous, perfect, and cultivated to be an idol... lethal to a girl's heart.
And sanity.
But fame plus a perfect face and voice don't equal an easy life. As their comeback nears, the stakes rise higher.
Suicide watch...
Angry fans...
Threats...

All I want to do is survive.
But the price for survival might mean losing my heart.
And like a character in a K-drama, I'm not sure if there will be an actual happily ever after...
Or simply a lesson learned.

Tonya's Review
5 Stars

This book deserves all the stars!  More than 5, but sadly 5 is as high as we can go.
I will admit to being unsure while starting this book.  I'm not really into K-Pop.  I mean if it's on the radio and I don't change the channel.  But that's it.  But Rachel is one of my "I must read everything she writes" author.
I have a whole new respect for what these Idols are put through.  She doesn't just gloss over the bad, or the difficult things.  She doesn't make everything shiney and pretty.  
Grace is an amazing person.  Once she's comfortable with the guys, she hits Lucas hard with the truth.  
My heartbroke a few times while reading this.
Some characters did make me mad *cough Rae cough* (I'm looking at you)
And poor Sookie!  I just wanted to take him home and feed the poor boy!  By the way, Sookie is my favorite!
This is an amazing read.  i want more.  I'm going to be greedy and say I want the rest to get a story!

**RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW** Resolution by Adriana Locke



TITLE: Resolution
AUTHOR: Adriana Locke
RELEASE DAY: December 10, 2021
BUY LINK: https://amzn.to/3ExNT5k (feel free to substitute yours here)

BLURB:

From USA Today Bestselling author Adriana Locke comes a workplace romance between a grumpy, alpha architect and his new client—who just so happens to have the blueprint to bring him to his knees.

Romance is not in Wade Mason’s portfolio.

This is tragic. It’s unfair that a man so maddeningly gorgeous—an architect with a deliciously squarish jaw, adorably dimpled chin, and the hottest black glasses that straddle the line between professional and provocative—rebukes all things love.

I knew this well before I walked into his office.

The man is a conundrum—a complicated, steel wall of a puzzle. On the one hand, he brushes against me in the conference room with a broodiness that sets me on fire. He demands in-person meetings about the house we are working on together. I catch him watching me out of the corner of his eye with a look that’s anything but platonic. But any talk of hookups, love, or relationships—even in general? Completely off the table.

I’m determined to peel back his layers until I get to the bottom of the mysterious businessman. But my plan is foiled by a surprise that leaves both of us reeling. Neither of us sees it coming, but it changes everything … forever.


Excerpt:

Much to my surprise and annoyance, she laughs as she walks by me. Her elbow grazes my stomach in a move that I think is intentional. Before I can react, she’s down the hall and standing in front of Eliza.

“That dress is stunning on you,” she tells Eliza as if we weren’t in a strained conversation five seconds ago. “Where did you get it?”

“Oh, for fuck’s sake,” I grumble as I slam my door. The framed copy of the first building I ever designed shakes against the wall.

I lean against my desk and suck in a deep lungful of air. The scent of coconuts only intensifies my frustration.

I open a window and then sit down.

“Busy men always go through the motions and never have time to be creative. I’m not sure that fits my needs.”

What the hell?

Relational intimacy.

Loads of rubbish, just as it was ten years ago.

Instead of listening to spoiled, silver spoon-fed women who want their ridiculous projects handled, I have real work to do.

My heart pumps from the interaction with Dara, and I find myself replaying much of our conversation. It’s not until I get to relational intimacy do I realize how much time I’ve wasted—and am still wasting.

I put my phone on Do Not Disturb and get back to the only thing I ever want to know intimately—my work.


About the Author:

USA Today and Washington Post bestselling author Adriana Locke lives and breathes books. After years of slightly obsessive relationships with the flawed bad boys created by other authors, Adriana has created her own. She resides in the Midwest with her husband, sons, and two dogs. She spends a large amount of time playing with her kids, drinking coffee, and cooking. You can find her outside if the weather's nice and there's always a piece of candy in her pocket.
